Is the customs office in St John open?  We want to stay in JVD but it looks like we have to ferry to STT then STJ because Customs is closed in STJ

A temporary Customs Office has re-opened in Cruz Bay, but only for charters and pleasure crafts.  Ferry service from St John to BVIs has not yet resumed.  So, correct, you would need to ferry from the BVIs (i.e. JVD) to St Thomas.  Keep an eye on the ferry schedule on this VINOW site for updates.

@tkmaui, Jost Van Dyke - STT/STJ ferry is due back later this month, expected start date is March 15th, 2019. See Ferry Schedule for information.
